Cardinal Logistics Management Transports Dry Ice to Save Years of Medical Research at NYU

CONCORD, N.C., Nov. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Cardinal Logistics Management Corporation, a leading provider of third-party transportation management and dedicated delivery services, assisted with the vital transportation of dry ice to NYU Langone Medical Center, hoping to preserve years of medical research from becoming a complete loss.

Shortly after Hurricane Sandy came onshore, NYU Langone Medical Center, one of the nation's premier centers of excellence in healthcare, biomedical research, and medical education, lost power. Backup generators failed leaving the abundance of refrigerated and frozen lab specimens in jeopardy. Years of heart disease, cancer and other disease research were put at risk of becoming a total loss. Due to the amount of time and resources spent studying and testing these cells, tissues and animals, the loss of this research would be a significant setback for NYU's research programs as well as the entire medical community.

To save the hospital's research specimens, Cardinal desperately needed to deliver 30,000 pounds of dry ice to NYU. The route from Baltimore, MD, to Manhattan in a 53 foot trailer carrying the crucial cargo was not an easy trek due to flooding, road closures, power outages and debris. Cardinal's Operation Manager, Dan Delabo, put together a strategic plan to pick up the temperature-sensitive shipment of dry ice and move it to its destination before any harm was done to the research. Given the importance of the delivery and with obstacles left by Hurricane Sandy presenting safety hazards for Cardinal's team and others, Delabo and his driver made the delivery as a team with a police escort. The delivery was a success with the Cardinal team arriving safely and the dry ice arriving in time to preserve the critical tissue samples.

"With weather conditions and transportation mobility at its worst, we were pleased to be able to provide aid for this imperative delivery to NYU Langone Medical Center," said Vin McLoughlin, Chairman at Cardinal Logistics Management. "Cardinal is committed to assisting our customers in the Northeast with their relief efforts. We want to do our part to get the storm stricken areas back on their feet."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
